The international and interdisciplinary nature of the Transport Studies Unit's science and research is reflected in the range of postgraduate research topics our graduate students undertake:
Current Doctoral (DPhil) Research Students
Technology innovation and policy instruments to advance low-carbon transport in developing Asian economies
Impact assessment of different utilization scenarios for Pure Electric Vehicles (PEV) on China's transport system and power grid
The TSU does not offer an independent graduate programme but senior TSU academics are able to supervise students who are admitted to the D.Phil. programme at the School of Geography and the Environment or other D.Phil. programmes around the University. Prospective graduate students should apply through the School of Geography and the Environment's International Graduate School in the first instance.
Choosing a supervisor
D.Phil. students are required to identify primary and secondary supervisors. If you wish to work with a member of the TSU you should contact them directly to discuss your proposed topic. The following TSU staff are available as primary D.Phil. supervisors:
In addition, some members of the School of Geography and the Environment's academic staff have transport interests and may co-supervise with TSU staff if they are interested in the project and are not already oversubscribed in terms of supervision.
